Mayor Domenic J. Sarno stated, “I am so proud of our Springfield Public Schools system, the leadership of Superintendent Dan Warwick and his administration, and our partnership with Sodexo, who time and again have stepped up for our residents and families during these challenging times, much like they did during the tornado. This is a huge milestone and achievement, not just for our Springfield students but for the children from the surrounding communities too. One million meals served and still counting! God Bless our students and their families and God Bless our City of Springfield.”
